HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County Fire Rescue responded to Bud Graham Road in Aynor after power lines fell following a thunderstorm Wednesday.

Power outages have been reported in Aynor and the Cool Springs area by Horry Electric Cooperative.

Just before 10 p.m., the power cooperative issued the following message to its customers:

There are four double circuit poles that will have to be replaced. Crews are not able to give a time estimate, but we expect it will be an extended outage. There are a lot of repairs that will have to be made. We ask members to please be patient and say a little prayer for the crews as they work as quickly and safely as possible.

A thunderstorm blew through the area Wednesday evening. Some areas received one to two inches of rain, wind and lots of lightning.

An Aynor woman said the storm blew away lawn furniture. A picture showed a grill tossed many feet from the home.

Stephanie Cribb posted to her Facebook page:

This is all I can tell thus far. I am missing a wicker loveseat, 2 wicker chairs, wicker table. And I found the grill but nothing more.

Another Aynor woman, Misti Rabon, said a power line fell beside her back porch.

"Service Pole 0, Thunderstorm 1," said Rabon.

A picture of a trampoline that resembled a pretzel was posted on Facebook by Aynor resident, Tonya Moore.

Drivers have been advised to avoid the area on Bud Graham Road near Tobacco Leaf Road while crews work to clear the area.
